UV curable chemistries must be cured completely, consistently and efficiently. This yields improved surface properties, aesthetic appeal, durability and function to components and products.
Does your curing process need to be as fast as possible?
Do you want to save energy when curing?
Do you need to precisely adjust the UV radiation to the formulation?
Do you need to continue processing as soon as possible?
Optimized UV systems can do this. See how it works!
How does UV curing work?
Ultraviolet curing (commonly known as UV curing) is a photochemical process in which high-intensity ultraviolet light is used to instantly cure or “dry” inks, coatings or adhesives.
UV formulations are liquid monomers and oligomers mixed with a small percent of photoinitiators, and then exposed to UV energy. In a few seconds, the formulation - inks, coatings or adhesives instantly “harden” or cure, ready for the next processing step.
UV curable inks and coatings were first used as a better alternative to solvent-based products. Conventional heat- and air-drying works by solvent evaporation which shrinks the initial coating application by more than 50% and creates environmental pollutants.
High quality: Improved properties such as scratch and chemical resistance, adhesion and bond strength.
Environmentally friendly due to solvent-free technology and less energy
Faster production speeds and capacity
Immediately ready for next process step
Enables curing processes on heat sensitive substrates
Easy handling due to modular design
2D or 3D component geometries possible
Less floor space needed
Reduced scrap increases yield rates
UV curing technology is used to cure inks, coatings and adhesives on substrates such as:
